I doubt you hurt the shaft at all - just make sure to watch for diaper rash.

Do they have lanolen or baby oil in them? I think that might be better for the shaft than alcohol.

Or aloe vera! Shaft cleaner/conditioner in a handy wipe, smoothes your shaft and your hands at the same time, revolutionary!

That's probably mostly alcohol. I carry alcohol swabs in my case - they clean great, don't raise the grain or risk warpage. 1"x1" swabs individually foil wrapped in boxes of 50 or more are available at any drug store for pennies each.

I recomend that you use them every time the shaft poops on your hand. Did I say poops? Oh no. I said it again.

you can just as well keep your hands clean.

take a barely damp cloth/paper towel and buff the shaft, then buff it with a dry one.

Worked for the old timers, works great for me. You don't have to buy anything and it just helps to keep that shaft sealed.......a good shaft will only get better doing this.

And its free of charge.

If there is nothing in a wipe that will cause harm to a babies skin, I doubt it will hurt your shaft.

I carry a handful of the alcohol swabs for a quick fix. They're great for cleaning both shaft and ferrule.

Youse them, Magic eraser and cue wax and yer good to go.

I'm a little surprised that alcohol wipes don't raise the grain of the wood... but having never tried them I can't naysay them. I'm going to have to experiment some!

It does, but not much. After cleaning with the alcohol, let it dry for a couple of minutes, then fold a paper towel in half and vigorously rub down the shaft. This will blend (burnish) the surface and you're good to go. Add wax if you like.

P.S. Alcohol wipes, and the stuff you find in your medicine cabinet is usually less than 10% alcohol. For the best results, go to your friendly neighborhood Walgreen store and buy the stuff that is 91%, by volume. For under two bucks you can get a lifetime supply.
